With this build, I'd just like to be able to play the latest games. Doesn't need to be at the highest framerates, but something decent. I don't want to spend alot on a videocard that may or may not support DX10. I prefer not to overclock in order to maintain stability - the main reason I didn't pick up an Intel cpu. So here's what I am leaning toward building for the misses & I..

KINGWIN SK-523BKW Black Aluminum front bezel, SECC chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
GIGABYTE GA-M59SLI-S5 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
BFG Tech BFGR79256GSOCE GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
ENERMAX Liberty ELT500AWT ATX12V 500W Power Supply
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Windsor 2.6GHz Socket AM2
CORSAIR XMS2 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4
LITE-ON 16X DVD±R DVD Burner W/LightScribe and 5X DVD-RAM Write
LITE-ON Combo Drive Black ATAPI/E-IDE Model SOHC-5236V

Once again, thoughts, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

I think you should go with the X-Fi series of Creative. You will notice a difference between the Audigy series and the X-Fi series. Everything else looks good. You could add another GB of memory to increase performance if you want.
